Hep A

Hepatitis A is a contagious viral infection spread when a person “ingests fecal matter — even in microscopic amounts — from contact with objects, food or drinks contaminated by the feces, or stool, of an infected person,” writes the CDC. Symptoms from Hep A usually last between two to six months.
